Michael Longoria Featured on Broadway.com!

January 31st, 2008

On Broadway.com’s Fresh Face column, Michael Longoria is spotlighted! Here’s a preview of what Michael had to say:

Age: “I’m a child of the ’80s.”

Hometown: Pomona, California

Sing for Your Supper: For his first post-college survival job, Longoria underwent a typical rite of passage for aspiring New York actors: He became a singing waiter at the popular theater district eatery Ellen’s Stardust Diner. “It humbled me and made me realize what I would do to survive until I got my break,” he says now. “And I actually learned a lot. The song that I booked Hairspray with, I ‘workshopped’ and sang about 100 times at Ellen’s before my audition.” And that song was…? “‘Runaround Sue,’ baby!” he says with a laugh. “Little did I know when I was singing all those ’50s and ’60s songs in that diner that I would be doing them on Broadway in Jersey Boys.”


  1. Pomona? I work in Pomona! Michael, I’ll go have a burrito at El Merendero for you. Ha ha ha. Nice story (and love those old Dion songs too).
